My son saw a man bloodied and beaten yesterday. His two-year-old eyes turned toward me damp with worry.

I didn’t have the words.

The blows were dealt on a screen, swung from someone’s imagination, made real by the ability to act and create convincing blood.

I wish I did more to protect him.

To make sure he knows that this is not okay.
